Side Skirt installation question.

I just installed one of my aero side skirts and wanted to know if this was the right way to do it for the area that goes right before the rear wheel.



Also, does anyone else's sort of cure outwards towards the very last inch of the bottom line?

Maybe someone could check their stock side skirts for me to see how they are mounted? I already took the other side off.

the top pic looks right, there is one more fastener in the back hole though (left side in pic)

Is that the front or rear end of the skirt in that 2nd pic?
...cant quite make out the details in the pic, but the curve of the lip does look weird.
the lip should have the same edge all the way down same as the original.


there are a few pics in the DIY thread

You should. It's not like an aftermarket body kit where you know it's something non-OEM.

The difference is very subtle, but completes the look of the car.

I've seen them in person on itdnwiwbp's car and I agree. I wouldn't consider them if they weren't OEM.

I'm also considering the OEM rear spoiler for the Roadster. I figure if I'm going to have to have them painted I might as well have them all painted at the same time. However, the spoiler doesn't seem to be as popular as the aero side skirts, maybe just because a lot of Coupe owners have installed the side skirts. itdnwiwbp's car is an M Coupe and he has the carbon fiber lip spoiler which looked great, especially because he has a CF splitter and mirror caps. The Roadster spoiler is a lot less subtle than the Coupe spoiler! I haven't seen many pictures on ZPost of Roadsters with the OEM rear spoiler.

Also have considered the spoiler for my roadster, but I'm leaning away from it. I think the loop is a little to ricer-ish, I've just seen too many civics, etc. with spoilers that are a little too similar.

If the coupe type one was available (lip only), I would definatley get it.
